Thank you to everyone who entered a soup in our Soup Week Challenge. You impressed us with your variety, your flavor combinations, and in many cases, your willingness to try something new. After much consideration, these are the soups that blew us away and why.
Vote for your favorite using the poll below.

|Pork Wonton Soup with Bok Choy|
Editor’s Note: “Her strategy of using pesto to elevate a simple vegetable soup shows ingenuity. Plus, this is exactly the kind of soup I want to eat right now; it’s nourishing, but not too hearty.”
|Almost-Spring Vegetable Soup|
Editor’s Note: “Great name—and I love the use of hominy here.”
|Soup for the Maya King|
Editor’s Note: “Who needs Prozac when you’ve got miso happy soup? Also, this entry got my attention for synthesizing something delicious from a favorite recipe and some leftovers.”
|Happy Miso with Warm Wasabi Noodles & Grilled Pork|
